There is a tendency in the industry today - including fashion - to hire PR teams who will use many unconventional ways to raise the profile of the brand, including creating accounts on social media and forums that look like normal users and using them to promote their product. It virtually always happens today if you hire a "digital" marketing team which we can assume Brioni's recent restructuring might have done. If it's outsourced to a click farm or other task marketplace ("open site X. Create an account. Post 4 times about Y. Post about Z praising it using any of these words.") it can look pretty obvious; one should always participate first in the forum, give to the community, before promotion begins (see virtually all affiliates here).
Of course, someone who is very happy with their new, expensive purchase and feels the need to share that joy will look very similar to the (imo, "naive") PR team user account.
What you should do is read a few more threads, and contribute where you can. If you can afford Brioni, you certainly will have nice things in your wardrobe and these nice things, with a well lit, well framed photograph will go down well in their relevant threads. Do 15-20 posts like this and people will be less likely to jump to conclusions (as I myself did with both your Brioni posts which could read verbatim like an ad in Dubai or Hong Kong airports).
